Threats to wild tigers growing

...nd southern Nepal as a notable victory. The scheme features wildlife corridors that connect 12 reserves. Tiger conservation efforts have also been successful in the Russian Far East. Many tiger reserves in the India, in contrast, have been mismanaged and have failed to protect the animals, according to the ar...

Breakthrough developments in rheumatoid arthritis reported

Genetic factors are linked to fever following smallpox vaccination

...rites, “The long-term goal is to determine genetic features that could be determined prior to vaccination, allowing practitioners to modulate the vaccination plan according to risk. This type of practice, the goal of personalized predictive medicine, appears closer in feasibility than ever given the pace of ...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

...ing genes. The heterochromatin also includes other features of biological importance, including sequences that code for non-protein-coding RNAs and other functional elements, such as small RNAs that neutralize transposable elements, or transposons -- DNAs similar to viruses that hop around the genome and are ...

Reconstructing the biology of extinct species: A new approach

...igh-resolution x-ray CT scanner, which can resolve features approximately 1/100 the size of those detected by medical CT scanners. In addition, experienced field workers used personal knowledge or film of animals in the wild to classify species into one of six locomotor categories ranging from very slow and ...

Chemical analyses of the bones back up this conclusion. Carbon and nitrogen isotope values of the Alaskan wolf bones ...

Puzzling plankton yield secrets to role in evolution/global photosynthesis

...abolic capabilities. "We found several striking features of genome organization," said DOE JGI’s Igor Grigoriev, the PNAS paper’s senior author. "Overlapping genes conserved across the species may enable them to cross-regulate their expression, while species-specific chromosomes with horizontally transfer...

Corals -- More complex than you?

... can throw new light on the origin of such complex features as the nervous and immune systems of vertebrates. Around 10 or 12 per cent of the known coral genes are in fact shared uniquely with vertebrates ?these are genes that have been lost from all other animals so far examined. These include genes for t...

"Our data suggested that promoter hypermethylation is common in breast cancer," Tao added. "Because promoter hypermethylation is potentially reversible, identifying cancer...

Fused nasal bones helped tyrannosaurids dismember prey

...ing a semi-trailer," he said. "All of the T. rex's features came together to give it the strongest bite of any land animal. The T. rex just blows everyone out of the water when it comes to strength. "The fused nasal bones had been observed before, but no one but us and Emily Rayfield of Bristol hypothesize...
